Liam Gallagher’s post Oasis project, Beady Eye, late last night dropped their newest single, the Dave Sitek-produced (TV on the Radio) “Flick of the Finger”. Coming out of nowhere (or more accurately coming out of KCRW, the National Public Radio station of Southern California’s Santa Monica College) we think it’s some of the best, most confident stuff we’ve heard from Gallagher the younger for quite some time & after the early Beady Eye releases (which were generally considered to be the somewhat lacklustre) it reasserts Liam as a serious force to be reckoned with.
Said the man himself: “It’s rock ‘n’ roll but it’s fired out into space. If you’re into drugs you’ll like it. It’s pretty druggy.”
